To make the most of your trip, there are a couple of things you can do to prepare. If you are not familiar with the Gold Country, it’s important for you to know that there are some roads [even highways] that can get quite windy. Our drivers know these roads backwards and forwards and will work to make the ride as comfortable as possible for you. If you tend to get carsick, we recommend you sit closer to the front of the vehicle. We also recommend the Naseau Wrist Bands from Amazon [See them Here].
We will lock the vehicle once we arrive at location, and the tour guide can let you in as you need items. But we recommend packing light.
Our Guides are there to keep you safe, make sure you’re having a good time, and will be great resources for local information.
Our entire fleet is comprised of Ford 350 XLT’s. Their high roofs are tall enough for most people to stand in. The vans have a capacity of 15-passengers that we limit to 9-passengers to allow for plenty of space. Multiple climate controls allow the van to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
We have amazing wineries, breweries, and distilleries available in the Gold Country. Our desire is for all our guests to enjoy their tour, and that can only happen through responsible drinking. No one wants to be on a tour with someone who is overly-intoxicated. If our Tour Guide determines that you are disruptive and impacting the experience of other passengers, we may stop your tour and return you to your pick-up location, at your own expense. Additionally, if any mess is made in the vehicle due to irresponsible drinking, a $250 cleaning fee will be charged. We hope this never happens. Don’t be that guy who ruins someone’s experience due to overconsumption.
Tipping is never required, but always appreciated. If you receive great service during your experience, our Guides and Tasting Rooms will be thankful for any gratuities given.
